Australian Medical Association calls for national summit on alcohol

Emergency doctors who spend their weekends dealing with victims of drunken violence have called on the Federal Government to follow NSW’s momentum in tackling alcohol-related harm.

Sexual assaults, dying car crash victims and surviving drunk drivers and coward punch victims are some of the cases Victorian emergency physician Dr Stephen Parnis deals with on an average weekend.

He told reporters in Sydney today there was no doubt there was more alcohol-related harm victims fronting hospitals than when he started 21 years ago.
